“Winter, a lingering season, is a time to gather golden moments, embark upon a sentimental journey, and enjoy every idle hour.” – unknown
As we move through wintertime, I felt it was appropriate to focus on reflection. Winter is an ideal season to pause and spend quiet time reflecting on what we want to leave behind and what we want to carry forward; it’s a time to settle in and cast visions for our career path and life goals.
Winter is a season of slowing down, noticing the stillness, and finding joy in quiet moments. It’s a time to let go… a time to create space.
To kickstart 2021 on the right foot, I’ve been playing around with this idea of reflecting to create space — clearing the clutter from my mental, physical, and digital areas. Throughout this process, I have to say I feel considerably lighter and noticeably happier. Unquestionably so. And one of the exercises that has made a tremendous impact is visualization.
Here’s how: Picture yourself one year from now and reflect on these key questions as you look back on your year:
How often do you stop and reflect on who you are and what you want in your career?
Most likely, not nearly enough or vaguely at best. This is precisely why reflection is a critical component in my signature coaching partnership — From Fried to Flourishing. Uncovering themes and discovering your unique characteristics is vital when initiating a personalized + purposeful job search.
Because the thing is, you deserve to enjoy a happy + healthy career for a long time to come. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to transform your dreams into decisions and make them your reality — because you are worth it.
This winter, I invite you to settle in, find joy in reflection, let go and stay well — the best is yet to come.
